World Book Day

World Book Day 2021 - Introduction

Welcome to World Book Day 2021 at Gunthorpe!


Today is a very different day for those in school and those at home!  All our Teachers and Teaching Assistants have selected a book and have each set a challenge.  They have recorded themselves reading the book or an extract from it for you to enjoy.  We would love you then to select the stories or challenges that you like the look of and have a go.  Some of the challenges and stories are suitable for everyone and some are more suitable for Infants or Juniors.


We hope you have a fantastic day- please do email your teacher or upload photos to tapestry of the challenges that you attempt today!
